EPL: Iheanacho will return to Leicester City training the following week.

Leicester City manager Dean Smith has confirmed that forwards Kelechi Iheanacho will return to training next week after a brief absence.

Iheanacho suffered a muscle injury in last month's draw with Leeds United.

Since suffering the injury, the Nigerian international has missed Leicester City's last two games.

There were fears that the 26-year-old would be out for the rest of the season.

Smith has however offered a positive injury update on the striker.

“Hopefully he’s due to training earlier next week rather than later.

“We thought he’d only have a build-up of two days before the Newcastle game, but he’s ahead of schedule, which is pleasing for us”, he told a press conference.

Leicester City will host Liverpool at the King Power Stadium next week Monday.
